Performance Troupe

The Performance Troupe here at Performing Arts Empire is the perfect place for the dancer who wants more performance opportunities than just our Year-End Recital. We recommend this for any dancer who is interested in competing with our Company Team in the future. The Performance Troupe does have additional requirements, please see details below!

Additional Requirements & Opportunities

Additional weekly classes are available for Troupe dancers, but are not a requirement
We attend Conventions every season, and we invite all Troupe dancers to join us! There are many great opportunities and experiences to be gained from attending and taking dance classes from new teachers, with new friends from studios all over SoCal!
We would love you to dance with us!
